    I found a copy of "Offering" for $6.00 a year ago and I want to send it for him to sign if possible.

    If that record has all the original packaging and the vinyl is in good shape you got yourself a treasure my friend. But for $6??? If us Carpenter's fans get together for a 50 year celebration Richard could very well sign it, who knows...

    Mercy, my OFFERING cost a cool $200 to secure. Well worth this in my prized collection.

    Mine cost about the same but it's in mint condition.

    I got mine for free. :D

    It was a gift from a friend in the US. I think he paid $50 for it, as that's what was listed on the customs declaration.

  7. Mine was free too. A gift from my sister at Christmas 1970. I think she paid the $4.98 list price...

    I would love to come across one of these at a thrift store, garage sale, or estate sale of someone just trying to get rid of what they think is junk or clutter. Even in average (playable) condition...love the cover of this album so much more than "Ticket To Ride". I looked on the world's largest auction website today and it appears there is one copy for $120, appears pretty beat-up though...

    I found my copy in a second hand vinyl store in South Africa. It cost me next to nothing. It is a little banged up but plays fine. I wish there was a decent, affordable copy out there for every fan who wants one.

    Can we still send it to Richard to sign it, I tried to e-mail someone at his website for confirmation but nobody responded.

    cover is a little bit faded, still intact, little writing, and the vinyl is in great condition.

    I can post pics if you guys would like.

    Good question... I'd send a postcard with a stamped envelope to the Thousand Oaks Post office or to the Performing arts center, and see if you get an answer in return... Too risky to send the album out to the unknown abyss...

    That's because nobody's been maintaining the website since 2008.

    Okay I am going to try an "experiment". I have the cd insert booklet to "singles 89-81" and I am going to try to send that first tomorrow. If it works i will then send "offering". If not, no loss.

    GaryAlan, the address you've posted is the same address I sent to- it got returned (I kept the envelope). Thank you, though, for always seeking out Carpenters information and linking it back to the boards. :D
